 I agree with the reply,

However, if the issue of protected names and 'Strings Ineligible for Delegation' (the category created by BoardStaff for this round) is ever opened up to discussion and to policy process at a later time, then I beleive the special status given any name other than "example", should be reviewed as part of that exercise.  For this round, the issue of reserved names was discussed as part of the New gTLD PDP and in my opinion any changes would require another PDP.
